RICHMOND, VA. (March 19, 2014) – The rosters and schedule for the Elite Clubs National League Player Development Program event to be held in Orangeburg, NY on March 22-23 have been announced. The event will be held at the World Class Soccer Complex with some of the best players from the following ECNL clubs in the Northeast: Penn Fusion, FC Bucks, Continental FC Delco, Match-Fit Academy, PDA, and World Class.
Player Development Programs (PDPs) are regionally-based identification and development programs within US Club Soccer’s id2 Program with three primary goals: (i) provide the top players within specified elite leagues with an opportunity to be identified and evaluated for higher levels of play; (ii) provide a high quality developmental experience; and (iii) recognize and reward individual performance and achievement. PDPs are operated in conjunction with elite leagues sanctioned by US Club Soccer. Top players from each ECNL PDP, along with other players scouted in ECNL competition throughout the year, will be considered for invitations to the ECNL / id2 National Training Camp in August.
Players are selected for the Player Development Programs based on their performance in ECNL competitions and by recommendations from ECNL coaches. The ECNL will be hosting nine PDP events across the country between February and May 2014, providing an opportunity for top players in every ECNL club. There are no costs for participation in Player Development Programs.
